the economy. but that changed when terrorist murdered four americans at the united states consulate in benghazi, libya, on the anniversary of 9/11. americans had questions. who did this? how? should our government have seen it coming? did president obama try to hide the truth? is this a huge scand that exposes a failed obama foreign policy? or is mitt romney just saying it is? tonight, we'll try to give you answers. we'll walk you step by step through the terror that unfolded that day. we'll break down the political maneuvering that followed. but we begin with a series of frightening developments and troubling decisions leading up to the horrific night in benghazi. it's a story you haven't heard. told by a man who tried to prevent what happened. on september 11, 2012. >> did you a close relationship with ambassador stevens? >> i lived and worked with him. >> bret: no one understands more than lieutenant colonel andrew wood. of the full extent of the fiasco that killed stevens. he worked closely with stevens for six months in libya before the violent death. a 24-year u.s. special for
allies. i think the tension that existed between israel and the united states was very unfortunate i think also pulling our missile defense program out of poland in the way we did was also unfortunate in terms of if you will, disrupting the relationship in some ways as it existed between us. and with regards to standing for our principles. when the students took to the streets to tehran and people there protested, the green revolution occurred for the president to be silent, i thought, was an enofer must -- enormous mistake. we have to strong for our allies our military and strong economy. mr. president. >> america remains the one indispensable nation and the world needs a strong america and it is stronger now than when i came into office. because we ended the war in iraq, we were able to refocus our attention on not only the terrorist threat but also beginning a transition process in afghanistan. it also allowed us to refocus on alliances, relationships that have been neglected for a decade. and governor romney, our alliances have never been stronger. in asia, in europe, in africa,
several of them that were widely distributed in the united states government. it's not surprisingly because the people on the ground in benghazi knew the security environment they faced and expected it. they had been cabling back asking for security enhancements. this is playing out of everything they worried about, now as you say, there is a paper trail. it's much harder to sweep away. >> greta: according to what we can piece at 4:05 local time united states, 10:05 in benghazi cable, u.s. diplomatic mission under attack. what we have been told during that time is that president obama, vice president biden and secretary of defense panetta were in the oval office together. there was a second e-mail at 4:54, third e-mail at 6:07 our time, 12:07 in benghazi and the 12:07 one was update to. they claim responsibility for benghazi attack. that the third e-mail. apparently the facebook and twitter. in the e-mail tracks we have, there is never one, any reference to some videotape or some protest. >> look, it's standard procedure for any diplomatic facility around the world. if there is a de

attack. i didn't need this. remember, the president of the united states also should have known that that consulate was attacked twice in the six months before, attacked in april, attacked in june of there was a whole drill through the consulate, big enough for a truck to go through. the president should have had all of that information. >> greta: he may have known that and been dismissive of it. >> then owing an explanation to the american people why he didn't protect the ambassador there. there was no reason for this man to die. >> greta: i guess the reasonna i mean, besides the new information and email, we talk about it again because it's a very important topic, four americans were killed. i don't understand, why did they come out with the videotaped story. if it's a lie, it's a stupid lie because there is -- you know you will be caught because there is nothing to support it in this written trail. >> every coverup is stupid, right. the coverup is always worse than the crime. although i am not sure that's correct here. competent procedures could have prevented this. if the pr
of the united states? >> lfirst of all, the response has been unbelievable, beyond what anyone would have ever thought, as you probably know, and as you said. and it has been incredible, the president is probably the least transparent president in the history of the country. and i am hearing this, not as a negative thing, but i am viewing this as a positive, positive even for the president. people want to see what is going on with the president. and i offered $5 million, payable immediately to a charity of his choice -- now, that's his charity, if he releases his college records and applications. and passport records and applications. now, if you look into the past, greta, john mccain released the bushes released, clinton released... almost all that i know of, have released information and informs that i am talking -- informs that i am -- information that i am talking b. president obama hasn't released. i hope he takes me up on it. it would be a great thing for charity. truthfully, i think it would be a great thing for him and certainly for the country because there is so much anger about this
senator lendssy graham to the president of the united states, and pointing out there were attacks only that counsels student lat in which an i.eied ripped a hole big enough for 30 men to go through. he's quiz the president if he even knew anything about it. >> it's outrageous. it was a month later. the consulates is attacked only september 11th. attacked twice before, one time in april one time in june. if the president knew about it, what did he do about it? if he didn't know about it, that may be more serious. why didn't he know about it? what the heck is wrong with the administration if he's not informed about attacks on the consulate. apparently we didn't do a good job of figuring out what happened after gadhafi. >> greta: hillary clinton says she takes full responsibility, and says the buck stops here, meaning with her the secretary of state. >> that's convenient to do that, but the buck stops with the president of the united states. the president is supposed to get national security briefings every single day. we know this president skipped -- i don't know -- half of them. becaus

because there's been some criticism that the united states at least it's thought that they didn't respond to some requests for help on the ground. he said something to the effect we don't send people into danger without knowing the consequence. i know you're also a member of the military reserves and the u.s. senate. do you have any thought about that? >> yeah. i think there would be a lot of military members that would be shocked to hear that. how many operations have we launched to help comrades in distress not knowing what the outcome would be but knowing that's what we should do? here's what the american people don't realize. in june our consulate was attacked, on june the 6th. they blew i a hole in the wall that 40 people could go through. about a week the british ambassador's convoy was attack in benghazi, libya. guess who came to their aid? lieutenant colonel wood, an american military member, a member of the utah national guard, part of a security team. he left the american consulate to come to the aid of the british ambassador and extracted wounded people out of the convoy while
and question the next president of the united states. candy crowley from cnn. >> good evening from hofstra university in hempstead, new york. i'm candy crowley from cnn "state of the union." we're here for the second presidential debate, a town hall sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. the gallup organization chose 82 uncommitted voters from the new york area. their questions will drive the night. my goal is to give the conversation direction and to ensure questions get answered. the questions are known to me and my team only. neither the commission, nor the candidates have seen them. i hope to get to as many questions as possible. because i'm the optimistic sort, i'm the candidates will oblige by keeping their answers concise and on point. each candidate has as much as two minutes to respond to a common question and there will be a two-minute follow-up. the audience in the hall has agreed to be polite, attentive, no cheering or boo or outbursts of any sort. we will set aside that agreement just this once to welcome president obama and governor mitt romney. [applause] [chee
to know and understand from the president of the united states, from the secretary of state and from the ambassador to the united nations, how they can justify that this video caused this attack. it was a terrorist attack. >> this is a huge story. because you have the state department now basically saying that obamma was lying, that jay carney was lying, that hillary clinton was lying and susan rice was lying and anybody else from the regime who went out and tried to blame what happened to our ambass dar at benghazi and in cairo on this video, were lying, big lifetime. >> obama, shortly after the attack, told "60 minutes" that regarding mitt romney's response to the attacks, specifically in egypt, the president said that romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later. given the fact that so much was made out of the video, that apparently has absolutely nothing to do with the attack on benghazi, that there wasn't even a protest outside of benghazi post, didn't president obama shoot first and aim later? >> first of all, jake, i think your assessment of what we know now is not compl
spent a good time talking about israel, saying that there would be no daylight between the united states and israel if he were president. you know, it seems to me that whole sort of israel dynamic. i pulled up the transcript going back to last november in which then president sarkozy was quoted as saying, got caught on a hot mike, netanyahu, i can't stand him, he's a liar. then president obama says, you're sick of him? i have to work with heife with y day. then he didn't see him when he spoke to the general assembly at the united nations. then today making a lot of emphasis on our relationship with israel. i thought that was designed to make sure he gets the vote here. >> it's a critical part of our national security policy. there's a reason why israel is one of our most important allies in the world. there's a reason why we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with israel. we share a whole range of common values and beliefs. we have to make sure that we're standing with them and that they're not alone as they, you know, face threats from countries like iran, for example. so i think governor romne
by the judge on the bankruptcy. it's just that terms were dictated by the president of the united states rather than through a trial in court. administration stepped in and said here is how you're going to settle this. and auto companies went through a bankruptcy. president ob yaum and his people saying we saved people from bankruptcy no, you sent them through a bankruptcy. it's a difference between normal bankruptcy and what the president did is that he dictated we're going to take secured bond holders they're going to lose their stake. we're going to ignore 200 years of american law in order to reward unsecured creditors my political pals said the president with people's tax dollars. we overpaid and gave them, we know we're never going to get our money back from gm. and chrysler, we gave it way ask said take it off our hands. almost immediately started generating big profits for fiat. fiat is losing money and look. this was -- wasn't that interesting? we got into a discussion about auto companies in the discussion about the foreign ach yairs. this shows romney is trying to bring us back to th
between the two administrations in another four years. he recognizes it's the united states of america's capabilities i say that meaning both our economic strike and what that suggests to other countries that we will be a factor going forward and military strength that will be a factor going forward which if you look at the last four years clearly president obama has a different view. the department is going to be reduced in size and cut. president romney -- i mean governor romney as president said he would be concerned about the size of our navy. the president was dismissive and rude almost by saying well we have fewer ships but we also have fewer horses. this is a man who never served in the military. i think people listen to that and would recognize that we need ships. we need a strong navy, a healthy navy. why? because we have economic course across the globe we see piracy of drug trafficking of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and all of which depends on freedom of the seas and to be dismissive about the size of the navy and say we have aircraft carriers we call them a
. >> greta: all right. let's go -- okay. let's go to the former vice-president of the united states. he suggested that the reason might be that denver is a mile-high city and the altitude was high and that may have made it difficult because president obama just arrived that afternoon. >> is he aware that the president gave his acceptance speech inent 08 in an open stadium in denver? didn't seem to bother him there. he did a great job in denver. i don't know what the president is thinking. but, you know, really, let me say this. i have never seen tbut almost expected it the next morning. it was all out, a pack of lies, romney had told lies, changed his position, misrepresented things. got his facts wrong. it came down to a simple question. if he did that, the president had 4 minutes more than governor romney, i understand y. didn't the president call governor romney out on that? if he said, wait a minute, you said the this here and now you are saying that now. fiunderstand you, you are changing your position here? you can. but you ought to say so. >> greta: i think it would have been bet
